I have been dating my boyfriend for four months. We are starting to talk about our future together. The other day, I asked him how much he earns. He refused to tell me. How am I supposed to move forward in a relationship if I don't know how much my partner earns? He refuses to talk about it or divulge his salary. Is this a red flag? I certainly think it is.

Should he reveal?
